I started doing endurance events in 2007 as a cyclist. Since then I discovered running and swimming and really enjoy all three sports. When people ask me what sport in a triathlon is my favorite, I used to say cycling was my favorite, but I can honestly say I really enjoy all three. I am also a licensed mental health professional and think the mental side of triathlon and endurance sports is the most neglected aspect of training and racing. I have spent my whole career helping people make changes in their life and achieve their goals. This is one reason I became a triathlon coach; to work with people on both aspects. I have the experience in both the mental and physical side of endurance sports to help you achieve your goals. Most endurance athletes have a tape-recording that plays in their head when things get tough (e.g. I can't do it, I am weak, or this is too hard). If the recording plays during training or competition and it is getting in your way, I am the coach for you. I believe that getting that recording stopped can bring a lot of joy to you and keep you exercising and participating in endurance activities. Give working with me a try and see how much you can improve!
